How to Start a War: The American Use of War Pretext Incidents - Richard Sanders

A little history lesson on false flags and foreign adventurism:

1846: The Mexican-American War
1898: The Spanish-American War
1915: World War I
1941: World War II
1950: The Korean War
1964: The Vietnam War
1983: The Invasion of Grenada
1989: The Invasion of Panama

The historical knowledge of how war planners have tricked people into supporting past wars, is like a vaccine. We can use this understanding of history to inoculate the public with healthy doses of distrust for official war pretext narratives and other deceptive stratagems. Through such immunization programs we may help to counter our society’s susceptibility to “war fever.”
