Veteran's Day Requires a Rethink

If central bankers start all the wars,
for profit and to degrade humanity
to advance the NWO,
a
re veterans heroes -
or mercenaries & dupes?








My annual Remembrance Day piece --
Wars are the closest thing to hell on earth. Of course, they are devised by satanists. Why do we accept them as natural and inevitable when they are not? Why do we perpetuate the myth that veterans were "defending our freedom?"


By Henry Makow Ph,D.


When the United States and England loaned Mexico money in 1903 using its customs revenue as collateral, Illuminati banker Jacob Schiff cabled his English counterpart, Ernest Cassel:

"If they don't pay, who will collect the customs?"

Cassel replied:

"Your marines and ours."   (The Life of Otto Kahn, p. 22)

Marine General Smedley Butler (1881-1940) confirmed that he was "a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers."

In War is a Racket (1935) he wrote: "I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested."

Flash forward to 2011 when NATO fomented and led a "revolution" in Libya, one of only four countries that didn't have a Rothschild central bank. Now Libya does.

They don't call it imperialism anymore. They call it "Our mission in Libya." Soldiers aren't mercenaries; they are "missionaries." 

CENTRAL BANKERS ARE BEHIND ALL WARS

All wars are organized by the Illuminati bankers to collect or incur debt, plunder or profit, and advance their program for "world government" tyranny. They appeal to our patriotism to sucker us in. We are told we are fighting to "preserve freedom" when the opposite is actually the case.

So how should we regard veterans? Certainly a few are heroes, but usually in a bogus cause.

I think we have to regard them as dupes and mercenaries. We have all been duped for a very long time. That gives Veteran's Day a tinge of cynicism and pathos.

WORLD WAR TWO


On Nov. 11, we are mostly commemorating World War Two. While we were losing fathers and sons, Allied and Nazi central bankers were huddled together in Basel at the Bank of International Settlements mainly financing the Nazis.

The BIS handed over to the Nazis the national treasure of Czechoslovakia, Holland and Belgium to ensure the war could go on.
This gold, worth $378 million at the time, was the basis of loans to the Nazis and was never returned.

The BIS accepted and stored Nazi plunder -- art, diamonds and precious metals including dental gold and wedding rings from concentration camp inmates. 

The US Federal Reserve, the Banks of England, France, Italy, Japan and the Reichsbank were all members of the BIS. The Nazi Reichsbank had most seats but the BIS President was a Rockefeller factotum
Thomas H. McKittrick (1889-1970). (Significantly he has no Wikipedia entry.)


"CHANGING THE WORLD"  MEANS HAVING A WORLD WAR
 

mckittrick,jpg.jpg(Thomas McKittrick, left)

Questioned by a US Treasury Dept official in March 1945, McKittrick  said that the war had been a charade all along, with Germany taking the fall.

Asked why the BIS worked with the Nazis, he replied, "In the complicated German financial setup, certain men who have their central bankers' point of view, are in very strategic positions and can influence the conduct of the German government..."


Then he spelled it out, albeit in an euphemism. The war's purpose was to reposition Germany for the banker New World Order:


"McKittrick went on to say that there was a little group of financiers who had felt
from the beginning that Germany would lose the war; that after defeat they might emerge to shape Germany's destiny. That they would "maintain their contacts and trust with other important banking elements so that they would be in a stronger position in the postwar world to negotiate loans for the reconstruction of Germany."

This quotation is from Charles Higham's mind blowing book,
Trading With the Enemy, 1983, p. 37.

 A Who's Who of corporations controlled by these bankers had factories in occupied Europe that underpinned the Nazi war effort and profited handsomely. 

Ford, General Motors, Standard Oil and ITT provided the Nazis with essential trucks, airplane engines, materiel and technology, often giving the Nazis preference during shortages.  In a telling example, the Allies bombed a ball bearing plant in Germany only to have the stock replaced by a factory in Pennsylvania (via Sweden.)

Higham refers to these bankers as "the fraternity." They are the Illuminati.

An earlier set of bankers masterminded World War One and  how they kept it going. But I think you get the picture. All wars are really waged by the Luciferian central bankers against humanity, i.e "the goyim." 

In 1916, almost 1.2 million British, French and German soldiers died or were maimed in the Battle of the Somme alone.
They were the cream of their generation.

By participating in any war, we are accomplices in our own destruction. 

The military is catching on too. A recent poll found that only 34 percent of U.S. veterans of the post-9/11 military believed that the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were worth fighting. US soldiers now generally say they are fighting "for their buddies" not for their country.

CONCLUSION

We cannot honor veterans without recognizing that, like us, they have been duped. Otherwise, we perpetuate the sinister power which holds us prisoner.

Ultimately, the New World Order is about replacing the rule of God with the rule of Lucifer. That's why "God" has become a dirty word. War is the principal means by which Lucifer's disciples, the Cabalist (satanist) central bankers, "change the world."

They have erected a police state behind the facade of freedom. We don't know this because our leaders in government, education and media are witting or unwitting participants. Treason to God and country is a prerequisite for success in many fields.

If honoring veterans means perpetuating a suicidal cycle of endless war, we must stop. Better to honor the dead by abolishing wars. We can do this by nationalizing private central banks, and making the bankers answer for their crimes.

First Comment from Chris P:

My Dad went through the full six years of front line hell during World War Two. He was a conscript and detested the army.
Here in Britain as in other countries, disabled troops returning from the front line were deliberately conned out of their pensions; it was a government policy to save money.
My Dad went into the forces A1 fit but came out grade E a physical and mental wreck. He, along with many others, were tortured after the war in order to dissuade them from claiming their rightful entitlements. Those that endured it were eventually given spurious excuses in order to stop their pensions. Dad was told his wounds and post traumatic stress disorder were brought on by his childhood! Others were told that it couldn't be proven their wounds were due to what happened on the battlefield even though records showed it did. Most disabled veterans ended up living in dire poverty.  The "Government Directed Pensions Fraud, has been deliberately airbrushed from history.
My short film "The War Justification Industry" gives an alternative Remembrance. It can be viewed on my website: http://www.warveteran.co.uk

SECOND COMMENT FROM KEN ADACHI:

 In the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, a certain percentage of young American men from blue collar families would typically join some branch of the US military to gain employment, free medical and dental care, free meals and housing, technical training, perhaps some college, and above all, have an adventure and see the world. 

No one of those decades had any inkling of what the Pentagon was really about and just how rotten are the scoundrels and liars of Washington DC who connive with their pals in banking and the military-industrial complex to create the pretext and excuses to wage war against innocent people in far away lands, so said scoundrels can generate obscene amounts of profit and booty for themselves, and all at taxpayer expense. 

Following the treachery leveled against US service men in the first Gulf war (1991) by its own government in which hundreds of thousands of men and women were subjected to vaccinations that caused the intentionally introduced, lab created "Gulf War syndrome (or illness)", you would think that far more young people would think twice about joining a Pentagon killing machine that had all the earmarks of satanic stewardship. 

After the traitors in our military and government, working with the Mossad, orchestrated the events of 9/11, they send US military personnel into Iraq and Afghanistan to engage in such depraved levels of barbarity, cruelty, and murderous savagery (mostly against civilians), that for the first time in the history of the United States, we have scores and scores of returning military men committing suicide because they can no longer take the mental torment that their conscience has forced upon them for their unconscionable conduct in the Middle East.

The only way you can stop this process is to stop cooperating with it and that means to stop enlisting in the military and subject yourself to the Pentagon's sorcerers (and I mean that literally). In 2005, all the signs were in place for the calling of a draft, but ultimately they decided to not follow through because the war in Iraq, I think, was beginning to lose popular support and the institution of a draft would lead to anti-war protests on campuses across the country and that in turn would lead to an eventual pullout of US troops in the Middle East (as in Vietnam). 

So they start sucking up recruits from Mexico, Central America, South America and the Philippines to fill American military boots and make up the shortfall with promises of a fast track to US citzenship and other financial perks and incentives (at taxpayer expense, of course). In earlier decades, you could believe the party line that we were the Good Guys of the world and that our mission was to 'maintain the peace' and 'provide stability', and all the flag-waving crap that they throw at naive, inexperienced, and trusting young minds. But today there is no excuse.

 With the internet, anyone can find out exactly who and what the Pentagon is and understand the price you will pay if you foolishly decide to join that killing machine. You can't blame the veterans of earlier decades because we thought we were doing the right thing and assumed that the military was on the up and up. But today, everyone should know the score and we should do nothing to encourage or enable that killing enterprise-including celebrating its 'commemorative' rituals

DB said (November 12, 2013):

Here is a very important video. It shows why the Vets and Cops should really RE-THINK everything. They are being duped, used and HEAVILY MOCKED by the PTB that they serve. And they should not be angry at the messenger! But at those who DECEIVE THEM,MOCK THEM ,USE THEM, SACRIFICE THEM for PROFIT GAIN. Time for a real de-briefing!

The video can be found at youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3z2chw_bR50#t=0

Or here, with a wealth of other videos, podcasts and other insightful resources:
http://www.whatonearthishappening.com/videos

Certainly a lot of civilians have already re-thought Vets day.
Some of us call it glorified pawn/murderers day. Or other similar expressions.

Past time to wake up. ALL WARS SERVE ONLY THE GREEDY PTB. All war is ritual satanic sacrifice. War is murder. There is no honor in murdering. I do not call murderers 'heroes". And that old worn out excuse "Well, I was just taking orders." Does not hold water. I doubt it will hold water come judgement day either. Atrocity is NOT glorified!


Derek said (November 11, 2013):

This was the most prominent shot from an advert for Remembrance Day aired repeatedly on CBC and CTV the last week. It's a long slow-motion shot of a black soldier next to a white soldier. I'm no bigot. However, can you imagine the dedication and effort it required to scour the archives for this shot?


Bill said (November 11, 2013):

I have a deep respect for those who are serving and for those who have served our country in the military. I am for a strong military to defend our country. But, I am against using the military to transfer wealth into the pockets of our wealthiest families and to increase worldwide market share for their corporations.

The quote below from the article uses the word "bankers". I prefer Lundberg's "super-rich" because the wealth that "influences" our government to declare unconstitutional wars and that swells in value as a result of these unnecessary conflicts belongs to our richest families. They own major equity in all of our largest corporations, including the largest banks. Quite often, J.P. Morgan is described as a Rothschild "front" in the literature.

Today, we should honor the military but condemn unconstitutional war.


Victoria said (November 11, 2013):

Despite having had a father who fought the Japanese in Burma in WWII, I haven't bought a poppy for some years now for the same reasons that you and others of your readers, list.

Like many of you, I've awakened to the fact that most of the conscripts were uninformed and, therefore, gullible, and being young, probably looking for adventure. I would contend that in many ways it was easier to do what was expected of one than to stand out from the crowd as a conscientious objector and face the scorn, derision and hatred of one's nearest and dearest. Even now, moral courage is in short supply.


Dick P said (November 10, 2013):

You're absolutely correct Henry.

I'm from the US and served 2 tours IN VietNam. I was sent over and arrived 30 days after the fake/false flag of the "Gulf of Tonkin" incident. I talked to the guys on the Turner Joy and the Maddox. Thay didn't know of any attack on the day given by Johnson.

What they were doing in the days before was committing acts of war against North VietNam by participating with South VietNam in commando raids. I was awakened and sought facts after the talks and 2 tours. I'm still looking at historical events with an eye for the truth, not political fantasy sold for public consumption.
I'm not proud of my participation and label my self a loser. They did teach me to not be as gullible and search out the truth. General Butler was/is correct. Henry Makow is correct.
Thank YOU for publishing the politically incorrect, factual truth of how it really is and how it got that way.

When did "Armistice Day" become "Veteran's Day"? Doesn't matter. It's in your face celebration of ignorance, stupidity, idiocy and how Bernays style propaganda is still being used against the "useless eaters" and the "useful idiots".


Michael said (November 10, 2013):

dispute what Ken Adachi says [below]. I am a veteran. My draft number was 38. Prior to going in I actively protested the Viet Nam War. In fact I watched as the police opened fire on us, killing one. When I was in I never for one minute thought that I was defending my country. We knew all about the Military Industrial Complex. People should listen to some of the protest songs from back then. They are just as applicable now. Mick


Milton said (November 13, 2012):

As William Joyce (Lord Haw Haw) said ----- 'I am sorry for the sons of Britain who have died without knowing why'.


Jim said (November 12, 2012):

Just read the InfoWars article you posted regarding that one-third of Americans are willing to undergo a body cavity search in order to fly.

I am a corrections officer at a state prison. Been doing it for 24 years and not once that I can remember when an inmate had to undergo a body cavity search unless they were suspected of "packing." Even then the inmate is taken to the local hospital and a doctor performs the search and only after an x-ray is taken.

It's shocking to me that 'free', unincarcerated citizens would be so willing to allow this.


Dan A said (November 12, 2012):

I was a medic with the Navy and Marine Corps. from 1984 to 1988. And I enjoyed my adventure then. However, knowing what I know now about my country, I'm not sure I would of served in the armed forces then. But that is the great thing about being young- you are blissfully ignorant. My love for medicine developed then, and I remained in that field for over 20 years.

Smedley Butler has a base named after him in Okinawa, Japan. I was stationed there for a year. Most did not know about that General, who were stationed with me there.

I believe the suicides that are occuring with this war now are due to a combination of the psychotropic drugs the troops are taking over there, combined with their realization of the nature of the war they are involved in over there now.


D said (November 12, 2012):

My grandfather was Warrant Officer stationed at Ft Laramie, Wyoming, during the the 1st World War. He educated me that every American war began with a fake pretext (now called "false flag op"). He told me fighting in wars is for suckers. He told me the 20th century was one long World War that started in 19th century. All wars now are part of ONE WAR bring the world under control of World Government.

Just like in Orwell's 1984, that's what modern wars are about. In Goldstein's Book, O'Brien reveals to Winston that war isn't a horizontal affair against opposing people's, but is the war of the controllers against the people


Tony B said (November 12, 2012):

It's not the banks that need to be nationalized, it's the money. Under right order no government would be in the banking business and no bank would be in the money creation business. The two must be kept separate for an honest economy to exist.

The U.S. media now calls every last soldier killed a hero. In past wars that was an earned honor. Yet, in a sense, each of those 400 grunts shot in the back by Israeli snippers, with the planned assumption that it was done by "them Iraqi rag heads" is a hero to me.

Unfortunately, there is too high a percentage of American soldiers who surpass the "mercenary" label but fit more exactly that of Myrmidon. Their concept seems to be as Talmudic as the "Illumined ones" in that they consider only English speakers people - and not all of them. Some appear to glory in what amounts basically to mass murder of innocent people not of their own ethnic group.

For the more considerate soldiers, these enforced inhuman acts are the real cause of record numbers of suicides which are routinely blamed on too long a stint "on the front lines" which don't even exist in these phony wars.

But the more true set of Myrmidons are the MSM never mentioned "secret army" of well paid "contractors," the very large contingent of sadistic scum who take their mayhem from country to country doing the banker's knee capping and who are the present so-called "civil war" army trying to destabilize Syria after recently destroying Libya for the bankers. For them the U.S. needs a new "day of infamy" observance, together with some serious consideration of war crimes trials and general atonement.


R said (November 12, 2012):

It's encouraging to see that there are others that see this menagerie of tears for what it really is... the glorification of war and conflict, inspiring millions of impressionable young minds to follow their predecessors into an elitist-contrived meat grinder designed to make them (the rich) even more rich than they already are. I, too, wore a uniform, when it wasn't so cool to be a soldier. Now, I wish that I had never donned the costume of an elitist's dupe at all.

Of course, it will always be this way. "Patriotism", as it is understood by the masses, is all-pervasive and intoxicating.

One would think that with the exhaustive and revealing coverage the modern media gives war, it would inspire a few youngsters to actually reconsider the glamorous notions that they have about war. Too many find out after it's too late what war really is - death, maiming, misery unbounded. And, they also find out exactly what value their own government places upon them when afterward they are shunned by the system when they need it the most!

Doing it for their buddies isn't sound thinking. If my buddy is determined to jump off a bridge, I'm certainly not game to follow! So, there has to be other motives. You often see the caliber of individual employed in war showing flagrant disregard for the rights of non-combatants and civilians and their property.

The 'glamor' of war often appeals to a juvenile and/or psychopathic bent. It gives them a license to put their basest and darkest inclinations to test. I happen to know that the vast majority of crimes against humanity never see the light of public scrutiny. The waste of resources, human and material, are incalculable.

I don't observe remembrance services in any outward way... but, I do recognize what all of this has cost humanity. Apparently, 'remembering' hasn't stilled the hand of war or warmongers, so it seems pointless to continue with a custom that ostensibly promotes peace. The reality is something quite different.


Glenn said (November 11, 2012):

If central bankers start all the wars,
are veterans heroes, or mercenaries & dupes?

They are all 3. But mostly dupes. So are the rest of their countrymen.

I'm a former Canadian Paratrooper who served in Mike Company, 3rd Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment. We were the first Canadian combat unit to be sent to Bosnia as UN ' peace keeper's '.

Myself, I was no hero, no mercenary, but I was a dupe. I was a 22 year old kid at the time. Didn't have a clue.

I'm not celebrating Remembrance day. Why should I ?


Michael said (November 11, 2012):

Hi Henry, thank you for your article on Remembrance Day.

I urge you to write a book about the true history of World War II, or even to reprint your previous articles in book form.

I do believe that most of the soldiers are heroes even if they were duped.

I notice that Remembrance Day is full of esoteric symbols:

The cenotaph is just an obelisk, a phallic Shaft of Baal for sex worship.

The cenotaph in front of Old City Hall in Toronto has a wreath penetrated by a wheat sheaf or a laurel leaf. Yes, it’s another sex worship symbol from the illuminati, similar to the Cross and the Crown.

Granite, particularly black granite, is a symbol of lucifer. This explains why it is frequently found at War Memorials, including the front lawn of Queens Park in Toronto.

The 11 numerology of November 11th at 11 a.m. (11/11/11) is a symbol for a world changing destructive event. A triple number has maximum potency in the occult.

The poppy is symbolic of opiates, a path to the Astral Plane (the Demonic Realm). The poppy also symbolizes Morpheus, the pagan god of Sleep. The war in Afghanistan is all about poppies.

“In Flanders Fields”, the poem that began the war memorial poppy symbol, was written by Guelph, Ontario fraternity member John McCrae and literally pulled out of the garbage to be printed in the newspaper for the first time.

Remembrance Day is not a memorial day for the illuminati. For them it is a celebration of lucifer, death worship, and their "Great Work" toward a New World Order.

Since most soldiers were Christian, this lucifer worship is inappropriate, to put it mildly. I wish the veterans knew this.


V said (November 13, 2011):

On Thursday I was thinking to myself that Friday is Remembrance Day and at school (the one I work at cleaning)
there is going to be a Remembrance Day assembly for the kids. The local news station had live coverage of the
Remembrance Day ceremonies in Ottawa and people everywhere were wearing poppies. The kids at school
decorated the gym with pictures of crosses, poppies, soldiers.

I don't want to sound like (pardon my French) an asshole but I was thinking, "what a bunch of propaganda bulldozer shit."
Our Canadian soldiers didn't die in WWI, WWII and recently in Afghanistan for our freedom. Our Canadian soldiers are dying
in Afghanistan to protects England's DOPE INC. (the opium fields) from the competitors. World War II was created to
neutralize Germany from being a independent European power, usher in the United Nations and to populate Zion (Israel).
World War I was created to dis-crown the crowns of Europe, get rid of the Ottoman empire so that the British could
occupy Palestine (Israel) and usher in the League of Nations and bring Germany to it's knees with round two coming up
in WWII.

I sincerely hope that our soldiers in death know who their "real" enemy is and that they were not fighting for freedom, or
in the case of WWI and WWII for "god, country and Queen." May their souls have vengeance in the fourth dimension
and the psychopathic oligarchy families who start the wars and misery an everlasting life with Satan, the prince of this world
upon their deaths.

Here is a picture I took on the Labour Day weekend this year at an Anglican cemetery in Niagara-on-the-Lake of grave
stones of poor Canadian soldiers that died recently, probably in Afghanistan.

Your right Henry. We should NOT honor them as heroes who died for our freedoms but expose the lies our government,
media is telling us about reality, history and maybe (probably not) our next generation of Canadians will not be fighting
nameless wars for psychopathic oligarchy families who regard us as Goyim (cattle), unwashed masses and useless eaters.


Mark said (November 12, 2011):

The masses love war and all its drama and economic benefits.

As in the words of our "Globalist Friend" in his letter from the New World Order to the citizens of the world, If you cannot "eat of the crumbs off of our table", ..........."you feel deprived."

And in the words of Lenin, "Society could go in a thousand different directions, but they (the masses) must never be allowed to know this. They must be made to believe that the system they were born in to, is the only one that could possibly ever exist."

Finally, in the words of Dr. Alan Watt, "It is not so much rule by the mob, but the mob in league with its elite controllers, against the sentient individual."

So, when finally put together, these three profound statements say in effect, "There can be no alternative or escape from this diabolically beautiful system of ours, causing your miserable state-of-affairs which we have studiously taught you to love and defend to the death with your vary lives, against any would be saviour who would dare to point the way towards salvation from it."


Michael said (November 12, 2011):

Thanks for this great article on "Veteran's Day". Good piece and needed. You said it well, the situation. I had a local guardsmen interested in visiting the "Military Officers for 9/11
Truth" website, till I mentioned a few quotes and facts. His demeanor changed and he asked, "So, what are you saying? We did this to ourselves?". I did not say it, I responded, look at what these officers are saying..You're in the Army check out what General Stubblebine says about the Pentagon..." It went
downhill from there, he totally shut the door. Dupes..its the truth. Brave, hardworking, dupes.

-- Thanks Michael

Many would rather remain in the dark than admit they are being lied to in the most egregious way.

Joyce said (November 11, 2011):

Thank you for the article and for the ones who replied. My husband had THREE cancers caused by agent orange fighting in Viet Nam and also wading through it during his munitions training on bases such as Elgin Air Force Base in Florida..

We married in 1988, he was diagnosed with the first cancer, Cloracne, in 1990. The second, a silent killer, renal cell sarcoma was diagnosed the next winter just before the 'holidays'. He was immediately operated on and his kidney went to John Hopkins where he was diagnosed with Non Hodgekins Lymphoma... two years later a cancer center opened up and against all my wishes he chose to kill himself with chemo.

He died in 1999 ... but his brain died in 1995. I fought the VA for DIC benefits and was denied for multiple reasons until they ran out of excuses and granted me DIC from 2007. I fought for the approval of my first application, and last year was heard by a Washington D.C. Judge who approved my claim with the reason of CLEAR AND UNMISTAKABLE ERROR. The reason I fought was because too many people acquiesce to the govt even though they have just cause to win. They maim and kill the best of the land, but won't approve justifiable claims..

War never brought peace, and even God Almighty threw the war mongers out of heaven above. That is why they love wars.. they have had no oversight.... but we KNOW they will and it will come in the very near future.

Thank you for letting me vent.

ARE YOU A VETERAN? IF NOT , WHY? A LOT OF POSTS I READ ARE HYPOCRITICAL AT BEST. I AM A VIETNAM VET FROM 68-69 101ST ABN DIV RECON. I ACTUALLY AGREE WITH SOME OF WHAT YOU SAY MAYBE EVEN MOST , BUT IT FEELS LIKE A SERIOUS SLAM TO WE WHO ACTUALLY HAD THE GUTS TO GO RATHER THAN GET OUT OF AN OBLIGATION LIKE ALL WHO DIDN'T GO ..... I'M ONE OF THE VETS WHO SPENT MOST OF MY YEAR IN HEAVY COMBAT TO COME BACK AND HAVE YOUNG PEOPLE SPIT ON US ON OUR RETURN.WHAT A WELCOME? I HAVEN'T LIKED THE PEOPLE OF THE US SINCE AND PROBABLY NEVER WILL.DON'T LIKE THE GOVERNMENT.KNOWING FROM INSIDE THEY ARE LIARS ETC.NEVER HEARD TRUE STATISTICS OF FACTS WHERE WE WERE IN TAM KY , OPERATION LAMAR PLAIN. DON'T REALLY TRUST OTHER VET STORIES EITHER.SO, IT'S HARD TO SIDE WITH THE VETS.... BUT IT DID NOT FEEL GOOD TO HAVE SOMEONE I READ VERY OFTEN SAY WHAT YOU HAVE. DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?


Cliff Shack said (November 11, 2011):

There is an amazing irony to the crack in the Liberty Bell. Somebody up there is vainly trying to tell us that the relished and well-sung concept of "Liberty" is but a sham. The same crack alludes to the "noble" lady who held her torch as she welcomed unsuspecting greenhorns as they neared the devils of Wall Street.

Alas, the time for warnings are over. It is as though we are all plodding and mooing through one of Temple Grandin's elaborate slaughter house ramps.

The lucky steer like us have learned just who had built the slaughter house. We also know who financed it and the names of the butchers awaiting us at the end of the ramp.

Yep, we are the "lucky" ones. Whoop-dee-doo. We have momentarily foiled the grand scheme of those controlling the flow of sheeple through the system. In a system based upon the idea that ignorance is bliss, we refuse to go blissfully! But...is that wise?


Hans said (November 11, 2011):

f drafted, soldiers are victims. If "serving" voluntarily, they are prostitutes or dupes. Either way, you can not be a soldier accepting and obeying orders from a satanic structure, and all western states are, and be a Christian. You can not serve two masters.

Dr. H Kissinger, famous war-criminal, Peace-Nobel Price winner and Illuminati admin, expressed it best:

"Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy." Henry Kissinger, quoted by Bob Woodward in The Final Days, 1976

Can anyone be an "honoured veteran" and a "dumb animal" at the same time? Once again: one truth for the "Elite", and one for you "dumb stupid animals"! Double-minds in war-action.


Tom said (November 11, 2011):

Great piece on rethinking Veterans Day!

One thing that I have been doing for the last few years is, every time I encounter a veteran standing outside a store entrance collecting money for veterans on Veterans Day, I ask the vet what he thinks about the attack on the USS Liberty. The fact that nearly ALL of the vets, even the Navy Vets, have never even heard of the Liberty incident is not surprising but this allows me the opportunity to inform and educate.


Doug said (November 11, 2011):

This is a very difficult and interesting question that you raise.

My position on wearing the poppy is that it is support for war and that these people that got shot, burned to death, crippled for life or blown up are (mostly) dead and we must respect the living and not perpetuate the memory of war to preserve the culture of war. If we stopped remembering what it was, the idea of doing it would seem insane and anyone that suggested it would likely be locked up immediately. I read that somewhere and I don't recall where and its the most sensible view IMO.

refer below to Norman Dodd's recollections of information his staff obtained from the private archive of the Carnegie Foundation in 1954, while he was the research director of the Congressional Special Committee to Investigate Tax-exempt Foundations, sometimes referred to as the Reece Committee. That Committee was shut down before any of their information could be entered into the Congressional Record.

In the minutes one of the boards early meetings in 1908 the order of business was to determine a means to change American society to conform to corporate interests. The question discussed was, “Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?” The agreed war was the most effective means to speed up "progress".
When the motive of war is to change society permanently, we can see the motive for prolonging wars for years that could have been resolved quickly, or easily avoided to begin with. The Carnegie minutes not only recorded a 1909 meeting planning how to get American involved in a war, the archive contained a copy of a telegram to President Woodrow Wilson instructing him not to end the war too quickly.

Have you noticed the definitions of 'patriotism' have been changing drastically? The US government decided to phase out the nationalist, patriotic identity of the military many years ago. It the same for all NATO members. They are being converted from defender of their nation to enforcer of the new world order. It is the ultimate betrayal of every soldier that died for his country during the last 200 years.

The "battle" of Somme went like this: soldiers jump out of a trench, run toward machine gun fire and are killed. Then soldiers from the other side jump out of the trench, run toward machine gun fire and are killed. Repeat.

Let's not pretend this is anything that could be called "battle". This isn't courage. It isn't even stupidity. It could best be described as some kind of mass insanity.

It took less than 5 months to kill 1.2 million men in this way, and the allies managed to gain less than 10 kilometers of occupied ter

My old man was with the Royal Canadian Regiment, in Italy. then with the Provost Corp in Japan during the Korean 'conflict'. He was in the thick some of the fiercest fighting the Canadians ever encountered, at Ortona. He told me about going out on the battlefields the day after, picking up bodies of German soldiers with belt buckles inscribed "Gott mit Uns"

Around 1972, he was asked to re-enlist and serve with the peace-keeping force in Eygpt. He was tempted at being promoted to Major, then after 2 years, being pensioned-off at full modern rate. I came into his shop one day to find him musing about what had gone on in the war ... he said "now I wonder what that was all about"

Same with my mother, a daughter of the RCR, who was a nursing sister in the Cdn Army, looking after wounded broken men from both sides, in Allied hospitals. They'd seen it first-hand close-up, as the best and brightest of their generation were sacrificed on the altar of the Roman god, Mars. For what?

I've never been to war, but I served my country. I couldn't agree more. This vid sums it up.

Thank you once again for having the courage to speak the truth.
