When we do open our minds to the endless string of lies, the towers that couldn’t have fallen due to airplane crashes, the phonecalls that couldn’t have been made with existing technology, the so-called Arabs who never showed up on the passenger lists (allegedly devout Muslims who ate pork and went to strip clubs), the building that fell for no reason, the air defenses that failed to respond, the deliberate lies, the stonewalled investigations, the confiscated videos and tapes that would have more clearly revealed what happened, and various other pieces of the puzzle that will never in a million years fit together, we have an inkling that something is really wrong, regardless of whatever allegiances we may profess.
That we have not been told the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
And then we recall bits and pieces of history that still stick in our craws like bad fish. The window opens.
Historian William Blum always describes these matters best.
"From 1945 to 2003, the United States attempted to overthrow more than 40 foreign governments, and to crush more than 30 populist-nationalist movements fighting against intolerable regimes. In the process, the U.S. bombed some 25 countries, caused the end of life for several million people, and condemned many millions more to a life of agony and despair."
But one need not lurch into history books to taste that sour burp of genuine American history. One need only not rely on newspapers and look elsewhere for unspun info on the American genocides transpiring this very day in Palestine, Iraq, Haiti, Colombia, Serbia, Afghanistan and throughout Africa and Asia to acquire an accurate picture of the way America really works.
It always comes as a shock to me to realize that today’s majority of the American population was not alive for Watergate, never mind that tragic spate of assassinations in the Sixties - all of which were engineered by the same demonic faction of the U.S. government that exerts its murderous impulses over all of us today.
So for you young victims of the American public school system, let me recount just a little of the actual history of your country that you may, in your media-induced, consumeristic coma, have missed.
Few Americans know that America's involvement in World War I was triggered by a deliberate deception known as the sinking of the Lusitania, which was a passenger ship torpedoed by a German U-boat that changed public opinion in America from neutral to pro-war. 128 Americans died and America eventually went to war over the incident, after first concealing that the Lusitania was covertly carrying ammunition to Britain, and that fact had been deliberately leaked to German intelligence to assure a suitable public affront to American dignity.
Many historians theorize that this period actually signalled the end of the republic, since the most important legislative act ever passed in American history, the Federal Reserve Act, gave control of the currency to private bankers, who have been igniting wars ever since for the purpose of making huge amounts of money.
“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
