GREAT BIBLE VERSE:
"Who will rise up for me against the evildoers, or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?" (Psalm 94:16)
HERE ARE SOME GREAT QUOTES:
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
George Santayana (1863-1952; Spanish philosopher & writer)
"Woodrow Wilson was re-elected president in 1916 on a platform that he had 'kept us out of war' and on the implied promise that he would 'keep us out of war'. Yet, five months later [i.e., in April of 1917] he asked Congress to declare war on Germany .
…What caused our [ U.S. ] government to change its mind so suddenly? MONEY!!! An allied commission…came over shortly before the war declaration and called on the President. The President summoned a group of advisers. The head of the commission spoke. Stripped of its diplomatic language, this is what he told the President and his group: 'There is no use kidding ourselves any longer. The cause of the allies is lost. We now owe you (American bankers, American munitions makers, American manufacturers, American speculators, American exporters) five or six billion dollars. If we lose (and without the help of the United States we must lose) we, England , France and Italy , cannot pay back this MONEY…and Germany won't. So…'"
Smedley D. Butler (1881-1940; Major General , U.S. Marine Corps, retired; a double Medal of Honor recipient)
((Ed. Comment to preceding quotation: Major General Smedley D. Butler wrote a great book entitled War is a Racket!))
"Having consolidated their financial grip on most of the European nations by the middle of the last century [Ed. Note: the 1800s], the international bankers worked feverishly to extend their sphere of influence to the ends of the earth in preparation for their final assault on the United States – a nation which, through its unique Constitution, remained free.
In the decades that followed it became apparent that, in order to achieve their goal of world domination, they would have to instigate a series of world wars which would result in the leveling of the old world in preparation for the construction of the New World Order. This plan was outlined in graphic detail by Albert Pike, the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and the top Illuminist in America, in a letter to Giusseppe Mazzini dated August 15, 1871. ((Ed. Comment: Pike had been a Confederate general in the "War Between the States" of 1861-1865.)) Pike stated that the first world war was to be fomented in order to destroy Czarist Russia – and to place that vast land under the direct control of Illuminati agents. [Communist] Russia was then to be used as a 'bogey man' to further the aims of the Illuminati worldwide.
World War II was to be fomented through manipulation of the differences that existed between the German nationalists and the Political Zionists. This was to result in an expansion of [Communist] Russian influence and the establishment of a state of Israel in Palestine .
The Third World War was planned to result from the differences stirred up by Illuminati agents between the Zionists and the Arabs. The conflict was planned to spread worldwide."
Des Griffin (author of the book Descent into Slavery?)
"This [i.e., World War I] was the 'war to make the world safe for democracy'. No one mentioned to them [i.e., the soldiers] as they marched away, that their going and their dying would mean huge war profits." – Major General Smedley D. Butler
"In the World War [i.e., World War I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the [First] World War." – Major General Smedley D. Butler
"For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a suspicion that war was a racket; not until I retired did I fully realize it." – Major General Smedley D. Butler
"War is a racket fought by the common man for the benefit of the rich and powerful."
Major General Smedley D. Butler
"I have estimated that the bankers…made about $30 billion out of the First World War." Dr. Martin A. Larson
"They thought to die for their country; they died for the industrialists."
Anatole France (1844-1924; French novelist and literary critic)
"They [i.e., the Wall Street financiers] want war because they make money out of such conflict – out of the human misery that wars bring." – Henry Ford
"'Colonel' [Edward Mandell] House [Ed. Note: a Freemason] was [the] front man for the international banking fraternity. He manipulated President Woodrow Wilson like a puppet. Wilson called him [i.e., 'Colonel' House] 'my alter ego'. House played a major role in creating the Federal Reserve System, passing the graduated income tax, and getting America into World War I. ['Colonel'] House's influence over Wilson is an example that in the world of super politics the real rulers are NOT always the ones the public sees." – Gary Allen (author)
((Ed. Comment: House was involved in "making" both Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt presidents of the USA .))
"[Financier J. Pierpoint ('J.P.')] Morgan [Ed. Note: a Freemason] was instrumental in pushing [the] U.S. into World War I to protect his loans to [the] British government."
Gary Allen (author)
"We used propaganda to make the boys accept conscription. They were made to feel ashamed if they didn't join the Army. So vicious was this war propaganda that even God was brought into it. With few exceptions our clergymen joined in the clamor to kill, kill, kill."
Major General Smedley D. Butler
"It is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and [for] exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." – Hermann Goering (1893-1946; German politician and Nazi leader)
"A government which has decided on embarking on the hazardous and terrible enterprise of war must at the outset present a one-sided case in justification of its action, and cannot afford to admit in any particular whatever the smallest degree of right or reason on the part of the people it has made up its mind to fight.
Facts must be distorted, relevant circumstances concealed, and a picture presented which by its crude coloring will persuade the ignorant people that their government is blameless, their cause is righteous and that the indisputable wickedness of the enemy is beyond question.
A moment's reflection would tell any responsible person that such obvious bias cannot possibly represent the truth. But the moment's reflection is not allowed; lies are circulated with great rapidity. The unthinking mass[es] accept them and by their excitement sway the rest. The amount of rubbish and humbug that pass under the name of patriotism in wartime in all countries is sufficient to make decent people blush when they are subsequently disillusioned."
Arthur Ponsonby (British Member of Parliament; from "Falsehood in Wartime", 1928)
"There must have been more deliberate lying in the world from 1914 to 1918 than in any other period of the world's history." – Arthur Ponsonby (1928)
((Ed. Comment: Ponsonby made this statement in 1928. A whole lot more deliberate lying and/or "rubbish and humbug" would follow during World War II, the Vietnam War, Gulf War I, and Gulf War II.))
"I want to know who the men in the shadows are,
I want to hear somebody asking them 'Why?' –
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are,
But they're never the ones to fight or to die."
Jackson Brown (musician; from his song "Lives in the Balance")
"Those who do not go to war roar like lions."
" America goes not abroad [i.e., overseas] in search of monsters to destroy. She [i.e., America ] is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors of patriotism and usurp the standards of freedom."
John Quincy Adams (1767-1848; 6th President of the United States )
"Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all. …The Nation which indulges toward another an habitual hatred or an habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest…"
George Washington (1732-1799; 1st President of the United States ; from his Farewell Address in 1796)
"And say not thou, 'My country, right or wrong'. Nor shed thy blood for an unhallowed cause." – John Quincy Adams (1847)
"The general public shoulders the bill [for war]. The bill renders a horrible accounting: newly place gravestones; mangled bodies; shattered minds; broken hearts and homes; economic instability; depression and all its attendant miseries; back-breaking taxation for generations and generations." – Major General Smedley D. Butler
"Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy."
"It would certainly have been better if Austria-Hungary had punished the Serbians for all the wrongs they had done." – Pope Pius X (1913; information passed to Prince Schonburg)
((Ed. Comment: World War I started in August of 1914 when Austria-Hungary attacked Serbia !))
"So the war-like sentiments of [Pope] Pius X were clearly expressed in 1913 already."
Edmond Paris (author of the book The Secret History of the Jesuits)
"What were the Hapsburgs [Ed note: rulers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire] supposed to do? [The answer: They were to] chastise Serbia , an Orthodox [Christian] nation. The prestige of Austria-Hungary , of these Hapsburgs who, with the Bourbons of Spain , were the last supporters of the Jesuits…would have been greatly increased. For Rome [i.e., the Vatican ], the affair became one of almost religious importance; a victory of apostolic monarchy over Czarism could be considered as a victory of Rome over the schism of the East." – Edmond Paris
((Ed. Comment: The Russian Czar was the protector of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. The "schism of the East" refers to the split in the year 1054 between Western Christianity (the Roman Catholic Church) and Eastern Christianity (the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church). This split occurred when the Eastern Church refused to recognize the primacy of the Pope of Rome.))
"The ambitious plans of the Vatican and the apostolic imperialism of the Hapsburgs [Ed. Note: the rulers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire] were then in perfect accord, as in the past. To Rome [i.e., the Vatican ] and Vienna [capital of Austria ], the growing power of Serbia marked her out as the enemy to overthrow." – Edmond Paris
"The public is practically unaware of the overwhelming responsibility carried by the Vatican and its Jesuits in the starting of the two world wars – a situation which may be explained in part by the gigantic finances at the disposition of the Vatican and its Jesuits, giving them power in so many spheres, especially since the last conflict [i.e., WWII]." – Edmond Paris
((Ed. Comment: Can we begin to fathom the significance of the five quotations immediately above? The Vatican (and more specifically, her Jesuit Order) had just set up World War I by telling Austria-Hungary that Serbia needed to be punished. We must understand clearly that the Vatican (and more specifically, her Jesuit Order) has long hated non-Roman Catholic Christians, especially Orthodox Christians (most especially those in Serbia and Russia ). The Jesuits also hate the Jews! (Oh, by the way, the Jesuits also hate "liberal" Roman Catholics – "liberal" meaning those who believe in liberty for all.) So, World War I was to be used to try to crush the Serbian Orthodox Christians. This effort failed, so World War II would later be used to try to murder as many Orthodox Christians and Jews as possible. (Between 600,000 to 1 million Serb Orthodox Christians would later be tortured and slaughtered by the Croatian Roman Catholic Ustashi in the early 1940s.) We must not forget that the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 in Russia was used to strike a horrible blow against the Russian Orthodox Church!))
"The Jesuits dominate the Vatican ." – Abbe Fremont
(Note: Most of this introduction is the same as was used for "American History – Parts I & II".)
Editor of TTT's favorite subject in both high school and college was history – especially American history. After I retired from military service, I began to read history books "outside of" mainstream publishing. To my horror I quickly discovered that a whole lot of very important information had been omitted from our history textbooks, especially in the public education system. Something very sinister happened in our beloved America in the 20th century, especially in the early to mid 1900s. It seems that some very wealthy individuals who hated America 's national sovereignty, her Republican form of government, and our beloved Constitution took over the mainstream media, the major publishing companies, and our public education system.
Once this takeover was complete, these wealthy individuals, who had placed their well-paid lackeys in key positions, gave us a carefully "edited" and "sanitized" version of history! Oh, they left in tact the names of generals, senators, and presidents. They also left in tact dates of important battles. They, however, did do something that was very repugnant - they omitted many key facts, especially regarding reasons and motives for wars, assassinations, etc. Something they also omitted were any references to the globalist rich and power elite who often rule nations "from behind the scenes". They certainly omitted any references to the tremendous power and influence of "secret societies" on the course of history. They also at times actually "fabricated historical evidence", such as the "lone-nut assassin Oswald" and the "magic bullet" theories surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Possibly worst of all, these maniacal, power-hungry "control freaks" (i.e., the globalist rich and power elite and their well-paid lackeys) have stolen the truth of history from numerous generations of Americans. And this is one of the main reasons why this editor of TTT writes newsletters – to try to get small pieces of historical truth out to a few more of those Americans who have been cheated by these "robbers of history".
I would like to cover the following important topics in this issue of TTT:
(1) World War I – the hostilities;
(2) The time frame immediately prior to America's intervention in the war; and,
(3) The immediate aftermath of World War I plus the League of Nations.
There are a lot of important facts concerning all of these topics that are not covered in the vast majority of the school textbooks on American history. If we do not learn these "lessons of history", then we take the chance of repeating them!
II. WORLD WAR I (1914-1918)
NOTE: Number of Americans KILLED in World War I: 116,516.
A. World War I – the Hostilities:
World War I broke out in Europe in 1914. Here is what author Des Griffin has to say in his excellent book Descent Into Slavery? concerning the outbreak of World War I on the European continent:
"…Behind the scenes feverish preparations were being made to embroil the world in an international bloodbath that would shake civilization to its very foundations. The Illuminati knew that to succeed in their plan to create a One-World Government (making the people of the world forsake their patriotism and surrender their sovereignty) they would have to create a situation of such hideous devastation that no nation would be left untouched. All of the nations of the world would have to be brought to their knees, pleading for peace at any price.
Most historians are agreed that the spark which ignited the Great War of 1914-1918 [i.e., World War I] was a trivial, localized dispute involving Austria and Serbia. Ordinarily, such squabbles would be settled in a matter of days, if not hours. This squabble, however, was different; it was used by the powers behind the scenes to bring about the world war that was planned more than forty years earlier by Illuminist [and Freemason] Albert Pike. Austria and Serbia commenced hostilities on August 2, . By August 4, France and Belgium were involved. On that day England declared war on Germany…"
The major combatants were:
(a.) On the "Allied" Side: France, Great Britain, Russia, and later in the war, the United States;
(b.) On the "Central Powers" Side: Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, and Turkey.
The World Scope Encyclopedia states, in part:
"The [First World] War raged with unprecedented violence from July 28, 1914 to November 11, 1918, eventually involving 27 nations, and more than nine-tenths of the global population. Nearly twice as many deaths resulted from World War I as from all the wars fought from 1790 through 1913. The enormous costs of the war as well as property damage resulted in hugely increased national debts in all the belligerent countries." ((Ed. Comment: And this war was certainly carefully planned to result in both huge casualties and enormous debts.))
The supposed "spark" for World War I was the assassination on June 28, 1914 of Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the heir apparent to the Austro-Hungarian throne. This occurred in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Austria, with German assurances of support, presented Serbia (considered responsible for the assassination) with a tough ultimatum on July 23, 1914. Despite a conciliatory reply from Serbia, Austria went ahead with a declaration of war on Serbia on July 28, 1914. The war kicked off the next day when Austrian artillery shelled the Serbian capital of Belgrade. Fourteen more declarations of war by various nations involved in WWI followed during the month of August 1914. The Great War was on!
B. The Time Frame Immediate Prior to America's Intervention in the War:
Again, the purpose of this newsletter is NOT to discuss the horrible bloodshed in the trench warfare that prevailed during the war on the western front, or the use of gas, etc. It is to show that this ("first") world war was carefully planned, orchestrated, and choreographed by international banksters and secret societies.
The "half-hearted" peace efforts are just one example of how this war was manipulated. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson had sent his "alter ego", Freemason 'Colonel' Edward Mandell House, to Europe in January of 1915 and again in 1916. (('Colonel' House had helped get Wilson, and later, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, elected president of the USA.)) House's loyalty was NOT to the United States – yet he was running the U.S. presidency "from behind the scenes". Please recall Gary Allen's comment about House from the "quotations" section of this newsletter: "'Colonel' [Edward Mandell] House [a Freemason] was [the] front man for the international banking fraternity." Anyway, House's several efforts at 'peacemaking' failed. ((One certainly must wonder how hard he really tried, since the longer the war dragged out, the more profits the banksters made!)) Additionally, House had already committed the USA to enter the war when he had signed the House-Grey Memorandum. This memorandum had promised U.S. intervention in the war if the Germans did not quickly make peace.
The German government had proposed peace negotiations on behalf of the Central Powers on December 12, 1916, but the "Allies" rejected any peace negotiations. This allowed the war to drag on for almost two more bloody years, causing millions of more casualties – and making lots of money for the international banksters funding both sides!
((Ed. Comment: This same scenario would later be replayed during World War II, when German Admiral Canaris in the spring of 1943 offered the Allies the following: he and other German leaders would remove Hitler and then surrender German military forces to the Allied Forces. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt deliberately ignored this proposal – thus extending the war almost two more bloody years, and prolonging the death, suffering, and carnage of World War II. It also gave the international banksters two more years to make lots of money funding both sides in the conflict!))
By the way, a number of personalities were involved in fomenting both World War I and World War II (especially in secret meetings). Two of the more famous were Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Many people know that these two men "led" their respective nations (Great Britain and the USA, respectively) during World War II. But far fewer Americans know the role these two "enemies of humanity" played in World War I.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt had been appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy prior to America’s entry into WWI. Roosevelt maintained a "full court press" on his boss, Navy Secretary Joseph Daniels, for measures that would speed up America's entry into the war. These measures included arming merchant ships and using American naval vessels for convoy protection in hostile waters – measures that Navy Secretary Daniels opposed. Roosevelt and others were working "behind the scenes" to bring pressure on President Wilson to enter the war.
Winston Churchill, as the British First 'Lord' of the Admiralty during World War I, was likewise putting a "full court press" on top American power brokers to get the USA into the war. It was this same Winston Churchill who ordered the British escort ship Juno to return to port, leaving the Lusitania sitting alone off the west coast of Ireland, where she was torpedoed on May 7, 1915 by a German submarine. ((The Juno had been scheduled to go out and escort the Lusitania into port.))
And so 114 American lives were lost when the British liner Lusitania was sunk off the west coast of Ireland on May 7, 1915. Some books contend that this "violation of the freedom of the seas" contributed to the later declaration of war by the United States on Germany in April of 1917. What is often omitted from American history books are the facts that the Lusitania was carrying munitions for the British war effort, and that the German Consulate in New York City had made numerous efforts to warn Americans NOT to board the Lusitania!
The following paragraph is a quote concerning the Lusitania by author Gary Allen from his excellent book None Dare Call It Conspiracy:
"The Lusitania, at the time it was sunk, was carrying six million pounds of ammunition. It was actually illegal for American passengers to be aboard a ship carrying munitions to belligerents. Almost two years before the liner was sunk, the New York Tribune (June 19, 1913) carried a squib which stated: 'Cunard officials acknowledged to the Tribune correspondent today that the greyhound [Lusitania] is being equipped with high power naval rifles…' In fact, the Lusitania was registered in the British Navy as an auxiliary cruiser. In addition, the German government took out large ads in all the New York papers warning potential passengers that the ship was carrying munitions and telling them not to cross the Atlantic [Ocean] on it. Those who chose to make the trip knew the risk they were taking. Yet the sinking of the Lusitania was used by clever propagandists to portray the Germans as inhuman slaughterers of innocents. Submarine warfare was manufactured into a 'cause celebre' to push us into war. On April 6, 1917, Congress declared war. The American people acquiesced on the basis that it would be a 'war to end all wars'."
The following text is taken from extracts from my first TTT (#1) entitled "Do We Really Want Another Persian Gulf War?", and TTT #3 entitled "War [for the most part] Stinks!" ( : )
"Most Americans were opposed to America's entry into World War I. George Washington had wisely warned the American people to avoid 'foreign entanglements'. Yet the British, and some of America's leaders, were bound and determined to send America's soldiers overseas to fight someone else's war!
First, the 'enemy' was demonized by the British and American press. German soldiers were derogatorily referred to as 'Huns', and many false stories appeared in the press telling of German soldiers roaming the Belgian countryside 'cutting off the breasts of young girls', etc.
Secondly, the United States needed a 'provocation'. And so the 'Lusitania', a British steamship, was loaded up with American passengers AND AMMUNITION, and sent off into hostile waters heading for Great Britain. This was done despite warnings from the Germans that ships entering these waters would be sunk by German submarines. We know now that the escort ships were 'pulled back' a distance from the 'Lusitania', and it was torpedoed and sunk. …[The sinking of the Lusitania] gave the ruling powers the EXCUSE they needed to send American troops to fight in a purely European squabble! (And let's not forget that President Wilson had run on a [Democratic Party] plank stating that he would NOT send American boys [off to fight] overseas!)
Thirdly, war 'fever' and 'hysteria' were quickly stirred up by the press. The American people were told that our American boys were going overseas to fight the war 'to end all wars', and 'to make the world safe for democracy'.
Fourthly, our American boys indeed did go over to Europe to fight, bleed, and die; and the munitions makers, bankers, ship builders, manufacturers, meat packers, and speculators made big profits."
C. Immediate Aftermath of World War I plus the League of Nations:
Here is the horrendous cost of this war according to the World Scope Encyclopedia:
"65 million men had been mobilized for battle; 9 million had been killed in action; and 22,000,000 had been wounded."
We must remember that top-level Freemason Albert Pike in 1871 had outlined THREE world wars that were to be fomented, orchestrated, and choreographed in order to "achieve the Illuminist goal of world domination" (as stated by author Des Griffin).
The globalist rich and power elite had hoped that a very bloody world war would lead to the founding of a world governance body, with the peoples of the world crying for peace. So, when their carefully orchestrated world war ended, they tried to set up the League of Nations. Unfortunately for these globalist rich and power elite, America still had some good, patriotic U.S. senators who realized what the elitists were up to, and these patriotic senators blocked America's entry into the League of Nations.
Well, fortunately for the globalist rich and power elite, they already had a contingency plan in place – an upcoming second world war. They would attempt to orchestrate an even bloodier conflict that would have the people of planet Earth begging for peace, and for a world governing body to ensure that peace.
On June 28, 1919, World War I came to a formal end with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. The oppressive war reparations laid on Germany surely guaranteed a second world war in the decades ahead. ((And it was planned that way!)) The globalist rich and power elite would again foment and orchestrate another bloody world conflict to advance their one-world agenda. One result of World War II would be the creation of the United Nations.
If we went every year to the same "used car salesman" to purchase a vehicle, and every year he would sell us yet another "lemon", then how many times would we keep going back to the same used car salesman? Yet the history of most American wars has been a history of lies, deception, propaganda, and manipulation of our patriotism! Phony slogans are also often part of the war propaganda, e.g., "Remember the Maine", "Remember the Lusitania", "the war to end all wars", "the war to make the world safe for democracy", etc. Yet as we often find out later, things were somewhat different than we had been told at the time of the particular "incident" that was used as an excuse to go to war. For example, when the U.S. battleship Maine was the victim of an explosion, and sunk in Havana (Cuba) harbor on February 15, 1898, it was assumed that the Spanish military forces garrisoned in Cuba were responsible. And thus we had the 10-week Spanish-American War and the famous slogan "Remember the Maine". Only later did we the American people find out that the explosion had come from the inside of the ship!
Then, in World War I, the Germans were portrayed as barbarians for sinking the Lusitania on May 7, 1915 – a British ship carrying not only American passengers, but also six million pounds of ammunition! LIES were also spread about the "Huns" (the Germans) running around the Belgian countryside cutting the breasts off young ladies and the hands off young boys. We would later get replays of such LIES with the "greatly exaggerated" Gulf of Tonkin Incident (i.e., the North Vietnamese naval vessels did NOT attack the U.S. ships in the area) which was used to escalate U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. Even more LIES would follow with the contrived (by a Madison Avenue Advertising firm) story of Iraqi soldiers tossing babies out of incubators in Kuwait (part of our justification for U.S. military involvement in Gulf War I), and with the LIES about the "weapons of mass destruction (WMD)" that were used to justify U.S. military involvement in Gulf War II.
We also have been fed the LIES about Pearl Harbor, the POW/MIA issue, Agent Orange, Gulf War Illness, the military servicemen used as guinea pigs in radiation tests, etc.
The Japanese were portrayed as "less than human" in World War II, much as Iraqis are now portrayed as "less than human" in Gulf War II.
Well, we've had World War I and World War II. Gulf War II 'smells' a whole lot like the beginning of World War III – especially if the U.S. gets involved in Iran and/or Syria. Of course, there is still the real danger of a Red Chinese invasion of Taiwan (Nationalist China) and the danger of a North Korean invasion of South Korea. America's combat forces are already stretched extremely “thin” in many locations around the globe.
Considering the above, we must all ask ourselves these very important questions:
"What happens if Russia and Red China decide to join forces in order to attack America while most of our military troops are tied down overseas?" And, "Is part of the scenario of World War III to take down the United States of America?"
As philosopher Santayana stated, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." We Americans can no longer trust our fearless leaders to do what is in the best interest of the American people. We can no longer trust our leaders to tell us all the facts concerning on-going wars and future wars. If we do not learn from our past history, then American young men and young women are going to continue to be used as "cannon fodder" in many wars all over the globe that are not in our genuine national interest. As elitist Henry Kissinger has stated, "Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy." And that is what the rich and power elite think of our children and grandchildren – pawns to be used in U.S. foreign policy.
Editor of TTT is NOT anti-war. I served twenty years on active duty in both the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army. I am in favor of all wars that truly defend this country's best interests – but not the wars that are in the interests of the globalist rich and power elite! We need to be defending this country's borders, and stopping the massive illegal immigration that is contributing to the destruction of this nation's infrastructure and economy. We Americans need to learn the lessons of war – and the history of American involvement in foreign wars, or we will continue to make the costly mistakes of the past. Once we get informed, we need to hold our government leaders responsible for committing American troops overseas! That is our duty as citizens! And we also, when we have gotten well informed on this topic, must become "teachers" of others. And that brings us to this final section on what we can do.
IV. WHAT CAN WE DO?
1. If you think that this issue of "Tackling the Tough Topics" contains important information, then please make as many copies of it as you can possibly afford to, and give them away "free of charge" to others.
2. We all need to get more informed about the wars in America's history, especially about the men behind the scenes who foment and orchestrate these wars. Once we get informed, we need to become "teachers", helping others to get informed. Here are some good books – try to obtain as many of them as you can possibly afford.
(a.) The book The Unseen Hand: An Introduction to the Conspiratorial View of History by A. Ralph Epperson; 1985; paperback, 488-pages; $18.45 postpaid. This excellent book deals with a lot of the "missing gaps" in American history books. It covers such topics as "money & gold", "secret societies", and a number of wars in which Americans participated: "The American Revolution", "The Civil War", "World War I", "World War II", and "The Korean War".
