    The US has NEVER invaded another country. The US is exceptional, the Greatest Force for Good in the history of the planet. The US has only gone in to LIBERATE countries, to bring them peace, freedom, and prosperity.


    Read the New York Times. Iraq was a horrible totalitarian state until the US went in. Now it’s peaceful and prosperous. The only regret is that too much US cash and too many US soldiers’ lives were spent to help the Iraqis, and the US really couldn’t afford that magnificent act of magnanimity. Today, as we all know, people from all over the Middle East are struggling to get into Iraq to enjoy that freedom, peace, and prosperity, and Iraq has to spend a fortune to keep them all out.


    Iraq is, of course, just the ante-penultimate example of US largess. There is a very long list of grateful liberated states who spend all day, every day thanking the US for their freedom, peace, and prosperity.

    om peQuod Seeking Ahab’s Reinstatement: He once could, but now he is in the State Department…at its head. It goes back at least to Monroe.

    Kerry would have won in 2004 if he had possessed Howard Dean’s political courage in 2002.

    The Gulf of Tonkin incident has long been accused of being a false flag operation, but this judgment remains in dispute.
    .
    The state-sponsored schools will never tell you this, but governments routinely rely on hoaxes to sell their agendas to an otherwise reluctant public. The Romans accepted the Emperors and the Germans accepted Hitler not because they wanted to, but because the carefully crafted illusions of threat appeared to leave no other choice.
    Our government too uses hoaxes to create the illusion that We The People have no choice but the direction the government wishes us to go in.

    In 1898, Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World and William Randolph Hearst’s New York Journal were arguing for American intervention in Cuba. Hearst is reported to have dispatched a photographer to Cuba to photograph the coming war with Spain. When the photographer asked just what war that might be, Hearst is reported to have replied, “You take the photographs, and I will provide the war”. Hearst was true to his word, as his newspaper published stories of great atrocities being committed against the Cuban people, most of which turned out to be complete fabrications.
    On the night of February 15, 1898, the USS Maine, lying in Havana harbor in a show of US resolve to protect her interests, exploded violently. Captain Sigsbee, the commander of the Maine, urged that no assumptions of enemy attack be made until there was a full investigation of the cause of the explosion. For this, Captain Sigsbee was excoriated in the press for “refusing to see the obvious”. The Atlantic Monthly declared flat out that to suppose the explosion to be anything other than a deliberate act by Spain was “completely at defiance of the laws of probability”.

    Under the slogan “Remember the Maine”, Americans went to war with Spain, eventually winning the Philippines (and annexing Hawaii along the way).

    In 1975, an investigation led by Admiral Hyman Rickover examined the data recovered from a 1911 examination of the wreck and concluded that there had been no evidence of an external explosion. The most likely cause of the sinking was a coal dust explosion in a coal bunker imprudently located next to the ship’s magazines. Captain Sigsbee’s caution had been well founded.

    President George H. W. Bush wanted a war in Iraq. Like Crassus, George Bush is motivated by money. Specifically oil money. But with the OPEC alliance failing to keep limits on oil production in the Mideast, the market was being glutted with oil pumped from underneath Iraq, which sat over roughly 1/3 of the oil reserves of the entire region.

    George wanted a war to stop that flow of oil, to keep prices (and profits) from falling any further than they already had. But like Roosevelt, he needed the “other side” to make the first move.
    Iraq had long been trying to acquire greater access to the Persian Gulf, and felt limited confined a narrow strip of land along Kuwait’s northern border, which placed Iraqi interests in close proximity with hostile Iran. George Bush, who had been covertly arming Iraq during its war with Iran, sent word via April Glaspie that the United States would not intervene if Saddam Hussein grabbed a larger part of Kuwait. Saddam fell for the bait and invaded.

    Of course, Americans were not about to send their sons and daughters to risk their lives for petroleum products. So George Bush arranged a hoax, using a public relations firm which has grown rich on taxpayer money by being most industrious and creative liars! The PR firm concocted a monumental fraud in which the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the United States, went on TV pretending to be a nurse, and related a horror story in which Iraqi troops looted the incubators from a Kuwaiti hospital, leaving the premature babies on the cold floor to die. The media, part of the swindle from the start, never bothered asking why the “nurse” didn’t just pick the babies up and wrap them in blankets or something.

    Enraged by the incubator story, Americans supported operation Desert Storm, which never removed Saddam Hussein from power but which did take Kuwait’s oil off of the market for almost 2 years and limited Iraq’s oil exports to this very day. That our sons and daughters came home with serious and lingering medical illnesses was apparently not too great a price to pay for increased oil profits.

    Then you don’t know history. You probably didn’t even know that Abraham Lincoln was actually an awesome Vampire Hunter. You really have to swallow things whole rather than just picking out the facts that agree with reality if you are going to understand popular culture.

    It’s well known in the US Navy that the GOT event was manufactured.

    The trouble with that is pretty much the same as with Maple Syrup. You need barrels of what is well known to get a pint of what is real.

    Secretary Kerry would’ve won if Ohio had held a fair election, if had run a slightly better campaign, and if the rightstream media weren’t still seeing terrorists under every bush.

    Senator McCain would’ve won if Ohio had held a fair election, if had run a slightly better campaign, and if the leftstream media weren’t still seeing racism under every bush.
    It’s a game any number can play, but nobody can win.

    No, you see those of who served with people who were there know what is real. Apparently you don’t.
