I really really do not want to sound fringe. If this ends up sounding fringe everybody will dismiss it, and the lesson will be missed. Please Read this with an open mind.
A long while back an event happened. This event was probably one of the biggest events in our history. You all would know it as the starting pistol for World War II. Pearl Harbor. Now for Decades the American people have heard a little voice in the form of people they believed think a little different...."They knew pearl harbor was going to happen and let it happen." All those nut cases blabbing that it was let to happen.... Well : thenewamerican story independent.org story www.btinternet.com. A Freedom Of Information Act form actually, finally answers that those nut cases. weren't nuts. Prior to Pearl Harbor we were already engaged in an economic war with Japan. We had sanctions, an embargo the whole nine yards. Robert Higgs of the Independent Institute explains:
In 1939 the United States terminated the 1911 commercial treaty with Japan. “On July 2, 1940, Roosevelt signed the Export Control Act, authorizing the President to license or prohibit the export of essential defense materials.” Under this authority, “[o]n July 31, exports of aviation motor fuels and lubricants and No. 1 heavy melting iron and steel scrap were restricted.” Next, in a move aimed at Japan, Roosevelt slapped an embargo, effective October 16, “on all exports of scrap iron and steel to destinations other than Britain and the nations of the Western Hemisphere.” Finally, on July 26, 1941, Roosevelt “froze Japanese assets in the United States, thus bringing commercial relations between the nations to an effective end. One week later Roosevelt embargoed the export of such grades of oil as still were in commercial flow to Japan.” The British and the Dutch followed suit, embargoing exports to Japan from their colonies in southeast Asia.
Well. That's not a big deal we post sanctions against countries all the time!! Sorry sanctions are an Act of War. Economic war.
I bet that all of this here reminds you of something. Iran. I'm sorry but this Drone you have heard about in the news lately, its the first in a long line of little reasons they will give for a war with Iran. Probably this list will end with a big fabricated reason, Probably a little more 9/11 a little less Pearl Harbor, but this reason will have one thing in common with those. A lot of Americans and A lot of our tiny scraps of the freedoms that make this country great will be dead.
I'm sure that our Government will also take advantage of the fear to make sure The National Defense Authorization Act gets passed. Then they wont have to work around all these damn tea partiers, and Occupy wall street protesters. They will just lock them up, The whole while saying "its only meant for terrorists! We
would never lock up our own citizens!". well, I'm going to bet you that in Nazi Germany they didn't think that the government that was coming into power to take care of them and redistribute the Jews wealth would end up enslaving them, Killing some of them just for speaking against the evil. If you just sit there and ignore this, change the subject when people speak about it or tune out, Things WILL get worst.
These politicians sold you out long ago and are very sure you are too dumb to even notice what they are doing. Do you think its a coincidence that the National Defense Authorization Act has an amendment to define America as a BATTLE GROUND, and its people are all possible enemy combatants all around the time half our country is protesting the government and how its run? Do you really want to be tortured because you said you didn't like what our government is doing? I hope not. Because I don't.
Open your eyes, because we are gearing up for a war with Iran. There have been so many pokes and prods from us, and it seems to me very one sided. We fund groups in Iran to destabilize their regime, there are mysterious cyber attacks like the computer viruses that happened to find their way into nuclear centrifuges, Murders of scientists, The list goes on. Hell look where our troops are right now:
Our Government is not subtle.
Poking Iran is not our biggest problem Though. Russia and China are both warning against an attack on Iran. Russia is sending Military to Iran's ally Syria. This is about to be a very serious problem. If we strike Iran Pakistan, Russia, China They are all on the other team. I'm not sure if you have ever played risk, but if you control Asia you are not eating at the little kids table.
Oh Poppy cock!! We fought in Iraq and they didn't start up the world war 3 headlines. We fought in Afghanistan, we carried out illegal covert operations in Pakistan, we have done all these things and the was no world war 3. Well I hate to have to be the guy to say it but every one is sick of our shit.
Russia is accusing us of tampering with their elections, Germany thinks that the world financial collapse is all a big plot cooked up by our bankers and politicians, and I have to dig through hundreds of On-line news sources and take notes to read between the lines enough to even know part of the story. Its sick and its blatant, but you wont hear about it. Not on CNN. Not on FOX. Not on MSNBC.
Not in your paper.
Obama has been doing a pretty ugly FDR impersonation lately. Lets hope it's just to get votes.
