I was told by woman who is an old friend of the family, who is also in the military with NSA clearance that “As long as mankind exists, war will exist.”
This was my reply to her on FB.
Wrong. As long as the state exists, war will exist.
“People don’t start wars, governments do.”
~ Ronald Reagan
Here is a little run down of why we have a terrorism problem.
We created al-qaeda… During the cold war the US government trained, armed, funded and supported Osama bin Laden and his followers in Afghanistan with a huge investment of $3,000,000,000. The CIA effectively created and nurtured bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist network using American tax-payers money.
We all been duped into endless war
Craig Fuller served as Chief of Staff under then vice president George H. W. Bush. Upon leaving the White House to enter the private sector, Mr. Fuller joined The Wexler Group, later acquired by Hill & Knowlton, where, from 1989 to 1992 he served as President of its U.S. operations and head of worldwide public affairs.
25th July 1990, Iraqi Troops at Kuwait’s border.
1990 Hassan A. Al-Ebraheem, President of Citizens for a Free Kuwait contracts with Hill & Knowlton to sway American opinion in support of defending Kuwait from Iraq.
5th September 1990, press releases go out to all major news outlets alleging Iraqi soldiers ransacked hospitals and left premature babies to die.
Oct 9 1990 – Bush mentions Incubator Babies at press conference
Oct 10 1990 – Nayirah’s Testimony before Congressional Human Rights Caucus
“I volunteered at the al-Addan hospital with twelve other women who wanted to help as well. I was the youngest volunteer. The other women were from twenty to thirty years old. While I was there I saw the Iraqi soldiers come into the hospital with guns They took the babies out of the incubators, took the incubators and left the babies on the cold floor to die.[crying] It was horrifying.” – Nayira
Jan 12 1991 Senate votes for war 52-47
Jan 17 1991 Early in the morning of January 17, Baghdad time, the U.S.-led coalition launched air attacks against Iraqi targets.
Feb 24 1991 coalition ground forces begin their attack.
Jan 6 1992 The New York Times published an op-ed piece by John MacArthur entitled “Remember Nayirah, Witness for Kuwait?” MacArthur discovered that Nayirah was the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the U.S., Saud Nasir al-Sabah. The whole story about the incubator babies…false.
Sanctions… August 6, 1990, four days after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, the United Nations Security Council imposed sanctions against Iraq. Estimates of excess deaths of children during the sanctions range from 100,000 to over 500,000.
On May 12, 1996, Albright defended UN sanctions against Iraq on a 60 Minutes segment in which Lesley Stahl asked her “We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?” and Albright replied “we think the price is worth it.”
9-11… Nano Thermite was found in the dust at Ground Zero. Buildings fell at near free fall speed. Tower 7 fell later that day – was not hit. Steel framed high rise buildings have NEVER totally collapsed from fire or structural damage. 6 out of the 10 Commissioners believe the 9/11 Commission report was “Setup to fail” FBI confiscated 84/85 Videos from the Pentagon. Flight 77 data recorder shows cockpit doors never opened from takeoff to alleged pentagon impact. 100′s of Firefighters and witness testimony to BOMBS/EXPLOSIONS ignored by the 9/11 Commission Report.
On September 10th, 2001. Rumsfeld reported $2.3 TRILLION missing from the Pentagon.
220+ Senior Military, Intelligence Service, Law Enforcement, and Government Officials question the official story.
Second Gulf War… The next time we were back in Iraq we were told of WMD’s…False
112,667–123,284 civilian deaths from violence in Iraq since 2003.
Why do they hate us?
In 2002 Bin Laden addressed America in his “Letter to America.” In he stated the reasons for fighting against the West.
“Why are we fighting and opposing you? The answer is very simple: Because you attacked us and continue to attack us. You have starved the Muslims of Iraq, where children die every day. It is a wonder that more than 1.5 million Iraqi children have died as a result of your sanctions, and you did not show concern.”
Quote from recent London Attack. Why Did he do it?
“We swear by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reasons we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. This British soldier is an eye for an eye a tooth for tooth.”
It’s been reported that Drone Strikes in Pakistan Kill One Terrorist for Every 50 Deaths. So you ask me what I would do to make Americans safer. Again, I’d end the wars and bring home the troops. I’d head the wise words of our first president when he said…
“The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.”
and Jefferson when he said…
“peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none.”
I left here with one final quote.
“WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.” ~Smedley Butler
She promptly defriended me.
