At the time of his death in 1940, US Marine Corp. Major General Smedley Butler was the most decorated Marine in US history, having received a USMC Brevet Medal and Medal of Honor. In a speech and 1935 short book, both entitled “War is a Racket,” Butler informs us of the following: “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. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes…” Butler goes on to expound on this in great detail as it existed at the time and the pdf of this entire speech can be found online. The inside group that he refers to is the Rothschild international banking cartel, which has covertly engineered and funded both sides of every major war since the 1900’s. Former British Secretary of State for Defence, Denis Healy, sums up how the world is a stage: “World events do not occur by accident. They are made to happen, whether it is to do with national issues or commerce; and most of them are staged and managed by those who hold the purse strings.”
It has been said that the first casualty in war is the truth. We’ll look at a few examples of how truth has been sacrificed as a pretext for war starting with Operation Northwoods. Operation Northwoods was a 1962 plan devised by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff to use the CIA as operatives to commit genuine acts of terrorism in US cities in order to be blamed on Cuba to garner public support for war against the small nation. One of the other possible scenarios suggested was to stage the destruction of a US civilian airliner en route to Jamaica in which an international distress “May Day” message was to go out that the airliner was under attack by a Cuban MIG. The transmission was to be interrupted by the destruction of the craft. The transmission would be heard by many so the US would not have to sell the incident. Another scenario was to blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba. President John F. Kennedy saw to it that Operation Northwoods never became operational. JFK was a real president who did not play ball with this ruthless cabal which ultimately led to his assassination the next year.
On August 4th, 1964, faulty sonar equipment gave the impression to the USS Maddox, stationed in the Gulf of Tonkin off the coast of Vietnam, that unidentified vessels were in the area, interpreted as North Vietnamese PT boats. US destroyers began firing on them but there was nothing there. Commander James Stockdale, one of the pilots flying overhead, said: “I had the best seat in the house to watch that event, and our destroyers were just shooting at phantom targets. There were no PT boats there…nothing but black water and American firepower.” The next morning, Captain John Herrick of the Maddox reported to US authorities in Honolulu that there were no sightings of PT boats by the Maddox and that weather effects and inexperienced sonarmen accounted for the event. President Lyndon Johnson disregarded this and seized upon the opportunity to initiate war with North Vietnam by ordering the same Commander Stockdale to launch air strikes against inland North Vietnamese targets. In the early 2000s, nearly 200 declassified NSA documents were released proving there was no attack by the North Vietnamese. The Vietnam war which cost the lives of over 3 million Vietnamese and American soldiers was launched based on an event that never happened. John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr. were all assassinated by the American deep state and one thing they all had in common was that they were publicly and vehemently opposed to the Vietnam war. Lyndon Johnson, however, was a swamp rat and eager to join in on the profit driven war machine. One of the profiteers from this war was the CIA who seized control of the Golden Triangle and trafficked heroin into the US, under the cover of the military occupation.
Nazi military leader and politician Hermann Goring stated this regarding war: “Naturally the common people don’t want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. 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 exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
Nowhere is this more true than with the mother of all false flag events, 9/11. If you haven’t seen the documentary series “Loose Change,” see it. The invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq was based on a lie and these countries had nothing to do with the attack on 9/11. It is well known that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq but this was the selling point to the public as to why we needed to invade them. And let’s think about this for a moment: If the Taliban and terrorists were the real reason we invaded Afghanistan, would there be a Taliban still in existence? Recently, there would have been no debacle at the Kabul airport with the Taliban because the Taliban would no longer exist. 9/11 was perpetrated for a multitude of reasons and just as in Vietnam, where drugs were part of the profit picture, this was also true with Afghanistan.
Afghanistan’s opium fields account for approximately 80-90% of morphine and heroin distribution worldwide. In 2000 and 2001 the Taliban began clamping down on the opium poppy fields. According to the UN Drug Control Program, opium cultivation increased over 600% after the US military occupation in 2002. The military was tasked with guarding these fields from the Taliban starting at that time. The opium drug trade in Afghanistan is known as the “Golden Crescent.” In a 2007 report from University of Ottawa professor Michel Chossudovsky, he wrote: “The Golden Crescent drug trade, launched by the CIA in the early 1980’s, continues to be protected by US intelligence, in liaison with NATO occupation forces and the British military…the proceeds from this lucrative multi-billion dollar contraband are deposited in Western banks. Almost the totality of revenues accrue to corporate interests and criminal syndicates outside Afghanistan.”
The aforementioned Smedley Butler said that there are only two things we should fight for: The defense of our homes and the Bill of Rights. Anything other than that is an abuse of our military. And yet, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once stated that military men and women are to be used as pawns for foreign policy. It is clear that foreign policy here does not mean protecting our homes or the Bill of Rights as Henry Kissinger is a made man within the monolithic and ruthless criminal empire that we live under. There is no war on drugs or war on terror. The real war is on humanity.
